The only people who were meant to understand the deep symbolism were the royalty and the priesthood. The common people did n...

The AE were smart enough to use boomerangs when bird hunting, so I see no reason why those who carved the throwing sticks would not also carve birds. We know they carved them in stone, but not for flight :) http://mstecker.com/images/egypt/southernnile/i60bird.JPG The article says: ''Moreover, they ...

I personally really enjoyed Sin City, so would be happy just to see this film expecting it will be such a treat on the eye (and I don't just mean oiled muscles and beefcake thank you very much, I can still look up Dolph Lungren for beefcake and Sugar Ray Leonard for toned muscles when I need that) h...

I heard the best review so far about the 300 today (I'm a radio gal, not a tv gal)

'Hotties' might be more inclined than 'Sweeties' to want to see the honourable, legendary Leonidas (an alleged descendant of Heracles no less!) breaking out into a sweat and dying with his dignified brothers - much better :D Go tell the Spartans, stranger passing by, that here, obedient to their law...
